Successful title defence: World Champion wins his second SCHENKER GERMAN MASTER

Stuttgart – The World Champion was in a class of his own and had the crowd in the Hanns Martin Schleyer Halle on their feet: Boyd Exell (Australia) secured his second SCHENKER GERMAN MASTER title in convincing fashion on Saturday. His win in the FEI World Cup DrivingTM series gave 5,500 euro prize money. “It’s my daughter’s birthday today and now I can afford to buy her a present,” grinned the Australian. “I once told my parent’s that if they come to a show in Europe, then they have to come to Stuttgart – they were in the hall today and were thrilled.”

The first four places in the 2010 test were occupied by exactly the same drivers as last year. Boyd Exell’s recorded a time of 204.09 seconds. In second and third at the STUTTGART GERMAN MASTERS were the two team World Champions Koos de Ronde (221.59) and Ijsbrand Chardon (224.08). Hungarian József Dobrovitz, who did not qualify for the second round, was fourth. His fellow countryman Zoltán Lázár was fifth, German Michael Brauchle was sixth and team World Champion Theo Timmerman (Netherlands) were all only spectators for the final run.
